Ian Williams controls the ball for Schroon Lake.

“Our last loss was to Willsboro, and our kids wanted to play them for the sectional championship and get another shot,” Wildcat head coach Lee Silvernail said.

“We know that we have to prepare for Jesse Shaughnessy and Ian Williams,” Warrior head coach Jim Spring said. “We are not changing anything that we do with our practice routine. Since our loss to Elizabethtown-Lewis in the regular season, we have re-focused and are playing a different, more team-oriented game.”

The Wildcats, who received an opening round bye, were led in the semifinal round against Crown Point by the duo of Williams and Shaughnessy, as Williams scored 27 points and grabbed seven rebounds, while Shaughnessy combined 18 points with 14 rebounds, 11 assists and five steals. Noah Gath and Uriah Harvey each scored six points, with Harvey grabbing five rebounds. Matt Filler had four points, with Robert Rose and Jeffrey Armstrong each scoring two points, while Armstrong added seven rebounds.
